I finally got inspired enough to work on this awesome piece of mesquite. It had been sitting in my shop for about a year. Its not a big coffee table but nice for a small living room or apartment. It’s about 36×17.

Thanks for looking
Alonzo

Both of your tables are beautiful. Mesquite is always a great wood for this type project and you all certainly did it proud!
